Husband got remarried without getting divorce
My sister is a doctor and she got married to a BAMS doctor. This person was mentally harassing her so she came back to our father's house. He filed a case in court asking his wife to come back home. He made false allegations on her in the case. After 1 year he himself closed that case. He paid fine for filing false case in court.Afterwards he filed for a divorce . One hearing of this case has been done till now. We yesterday we came to know that this doctor has remarried one month back. Our Advocate told us that we need to find proof of his marriage. What steps we should take further in this case? Do we need to find out the proofs of his marriage ? What if his second wife and her family are hiding their marriage ? If we make a police Complaint will they arrest him immediately ?

What steps we should take further in this case? If we make a police Complaint will they arrest him immediately ? -You can file bigamy case gainst him - IPC 494 No proof is required to file bigamy case. However to punish him, You have to prove the 2nd marriage. Do we need to find out the proofs of his marriage ? To prove him guilty, yes. What if his second wife and her family are hiding their marriage ? Try to find proofs of 2nd marriage (witness, marriage registration, invitation card, photographs, priest etc.)
